Support young people like Maxim
“If I hadn’t been supported by Teenage Cancer Trust I know I would have struggled a lot more. Your environment makes such a difference to your mental wellbeing, and the unit was a special place.”
One week before Christmas 2020 Maxim was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer called CNS lymphoma on the brain. No-one expects a cancer diagnosis for Christmas. Especially when you’re only 18. He was admitted into hospital the same day and spent the Christmas period on a Teenage Cancer Trust unit at Addenbrooke’s.
“Being looked after by Teenage Cancer Trust was the best gift I could have wished for. Please give other young people like me a gift this Christmas.“
